Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Jerry deserves nothing but our respect!

my statement of saying that some of the best music from Jerry and the band,is not only my opinion,but was also the opinion of Blair Jackson.From his book"GARCIA-an american life,"Blair aslo stated that "some of the best playing of Garcia`s career ocurred between 1988 and the spring of 1990,and the rest of the band was right there with him-always getting stronger,constantly upping the intensity level of the whole." instead of just trying to bang into peoples head that the Dead were only worth lstening to in the 70s,which i can say were full of unbelievable moments of fabulous music,try listening for the way band tremendously improved from 84-86 to the way they played in latter years of the 80s.

(the quote from Blair Jacksons book "Garcia-an american life,"was taken from page 385 about halfway down the page if intrested.)
